The show had a wonderful collection of carefully handpicked bridal suppliers from striking event styling to pretty bespoke stationery and provided the perfect place for contemporary brides looking for something different and unique for their wedding day.The wedding fair was held at One Marylebone, a venue which has been beautifully refurbished to the original designs of Sir John Sloane. The Grade I listed venue boasts 3 unique spaces plus landscaped gardens and sits moments from Regents Park.
I had the pleasure of meeting a number of the show’s exhibitors including Amanda from The Utterly Sexy Café. Amanda provides a highly original and complete catering service which provides beautifully prepared food, creatively decorated and elegantly served. They have everything you need for a glam tea party from pretty tea pots, plates and cake stand to delicate cups and saucers with roses and other classic designs.
